Address: 3525- 3529 NE MLK Jr. Blvd
Tenants: Löyly Spa and Purringtons Cat Lounge.
Completed: January, 2015.
Houndstooth Development acquired this 10,000 square foot property in 2013. The site's 5,000 SQ/FT brick and cinder block building stood vacant and in disrepair, having served since 1949 as home to a flooring company, a Lutheran church, and a Rastafarian club.
Houndstooth Development began rehabilitation in 2014. Work included a full interior demolition, new facade, and new roof.
The redesigned facade features an extended height glass storefront, introducing natural light into the two retail spaces. Framing the entryway, grey brick projects a bright facade while blending in nicely with the numerous other brick buildings on MLK. The stained cedar siding contrasts with the brick and marks the separating line between the two tenant spaces.
